This gesture of yours will not only bring joy in this lockdown but will also earn you respect and appreciation. Do make sure to list out as per your buddy’s liking.
Play online games with your friends

Order a sumptuous dinner
Treat your friend to a cuisine surprise. Lockdown has brought out the culinary skills of people all across. All those living with families are enjoying feasts day-in and day-out, but those who have stuck up away from their families, are to be remembered, pampered, and made comfortable in these trying times.

Order your mate’s favorite cake to be delivered at midnight if possible. No surprise can be more loving and mesmerizing as this one. If not possible then create his evening full of memories for him to remember and cherish for a lifetime.
Favorite music band on call
